    Great Stuff

    I have been using the active ingredient Cypermethrin for almost 5 years as an indoor and outdoor pest control product. It is a great chemical and does wonders to control roaches and ants. The residual effect is nice providing for less applications through the year. It also does not afffect my pets who have shown sensitivity to other pesticides.

    Demon EC (Max)

    By Lance on 06/26/2013

    I have used this stuff for over 10 years; beginning in a rental house that had sat empty for over 3 years and was full of all manner of creepy crawlies. One application of Demon (the first time I'd used it) and they all died a quick and horrible death, leaving the house bug free and inhabitable. It even de-bugged a 18 year old mobile home I lived in while my current house was being built. It's rare for a product to work as well as advertised, but Demon is the real deal.

    Best I have used so far.

    By Stan on 09/08/2013

    Out of all the products I have tried so far Demon Max has proved to be the best. As a landlord of 72 properties, I have tried many products over the years. Demon Max has been very effective and versatile. It has been mixed to do everything I encounter, RoAcHeS, fleas, termites, spiders and ants.

    Demon Max excellent product

    Highly recommend this product. I have been using Terminex services for years and it is quite expensive. I tried Demon Max and it works perfectly. Roaches are dead outside the house and never make it in. I only have to treat the outside perimeter of my home.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Which is better, Talstar P or Demon Max?

I am trying to control Ants, Mosquitoes, Wasps, Bees, Flea and Ticks. I used Talstar last year and I am just curious on which is better.

A
Both are going to offer a good kill and a long lasting residual though initially Demon Max may have a faster kill because it is oil based. On the other hand because Demon Max is oil based it could stain old paint/siding and it does have an odor.

Q
Since Demon Max stains, what color is it?
A
The product is a very light tan. It is the oil itself in the product that will stain so in most cases it leaves an oily residue behind which can stain old paint or old siding.

When using Demon Max the dilution rate is normally dependent on the pest you are treating for whether it be indoors or outdoors. For most pests you will dilute Demon Max at the rate of 1/2 ounce per gallon of water, however you can view other dilution rates on the Product Label.
